    Could you do animal boarding at your place after the cows go ?

    No. I dont have the set up for that. I thought about renting the pasture out and did have several people come out and were interested, but was afraid that goobermooch would harm their animals, so I didnt. Wouldnt of felt right about it. So thats one reason I do the cows. Something to keep the grass ate down and I dont get too attached to.

    Fingers crossed for a successful hatch!
    I want to hatch some eggs too but I really don't want anymore chickens.

    Yeah, @RollingAcres thats what I did and do if I dont want to keep the chicks. I place and ad and tell people they are straight run and most of the time mixed breed chickens. Ive never had anyone complain they werent pure bred. Its interesting to see what color feathers they come out with when they start losing thier baby fuzz. :)

    So is that what you're going to do with those duck eggs or you are actually going to keep the ducks?

    Probably sell them. Figured I might give a few to @CntryBoy777 as a housewarming gift at some point if he wants some. :frow
